To the editor:
I would like to thank you and the community for an incredible Strut for Strays event that was held at the Bartlet Mall in Newburyport on May 22. It has been recorded as the top fundraising event in MRFRS history! This could not have been possible without the support from our top sponsors The Institution for Savings, NEAVS (New England Anti-Vivisection Society), Petco and The Feline Hospital. A special thanks also goes out to all of the booth sponsors that joined us that day and to Flatbread for bringing their fantastic mobile pizza oven.
The pledges raised from the 200-plus walkers will go directly to help many cats and kittens in need. Right now the shelter in Salisbury is near capacity with cats and kittens and we have requests coming in for help every day, so please stop in and adopt a kitty today.
President, Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society
